Hi, wondering if you guys could answer a few xim apex questions I have.
1. Is there any way to ban them? Could Sony develop software that could detect them or are they truely undetectable?
2. Why is the Hori tac pro the worst k&m on the market? Why do Sony endorse the worst emulator and (as far as I can tell) make no comment on the best one? Does the tac pro work like the xim or is it a fundamentally different design?
3. If game developers programmed native m&k controls could they then detect them? Would this then allow the developers to disable things like AA and slowdown for m&k users? Could they display what control system a player is using?
Personally I see m&k as a huge advantage, so I bought one. I'm going to try and show this using my own gameplay as an example. I've played with m&k once in 2002. I was deployed to Iraq and the office computer had an fps game installed. I completed the campaign 3 or 4 times, I've never played fps online using a m&k. I'm using a xim apex, a Corsair M65 pro and a Razer Orbweaver. The mouse has 9 useable buttons and the keyboard has a thumb section that can control 8 stick commands, space and alt. This means I never have to take my fingers off wasd, don't even use my pinky atm.
The first thing I noticed is the ability to control recoil is intuitive and very easy. I expected to struggle in cqb and be better long range but I found the exact opposite to be true, massive instant advantage in cqb.
Moving is horrible, really unnatural, very frustrating. I get shot at and I have to think which buttons to press. Brain lag is deadly!
The emulator does not have 1:1 movement like a PC has, this is caused by moving the mouse faster than the control stick can move. First impressions, I think moving the mouse at the correct pace feels to me like 1:1 movement although I have nothing to compare it to.
I'm still working on the setup and played my first k&m hour last night. My first few games were 3-4, 4-3 types. Then 10-6, 11-5 and 15-5. These were all tdm games.
The point of this thread is to encourage native k&m support on ps4. I believe at present we have a very unlevel playing field and something should be done about it. Yes, I have joined the dark side of the force so cries of foulplay and cheater will fall on deaf ears. However this is not a situation I'm happy about and I wish to contribute something to a resolution.
I love online fps games and I will always play with the best setup. Ethics are an individual concern. The only thing that matters to me is whether I'm breaking the rules or not, if it's within the rules it's all good.
If the forum allows me I plan to start a new video thread documenting my switch from DS4 to m&k.
